Immigration-Related Offenses

Both U.S. citizens and non-citizens can be charged with a number of immigration-related crimes, including:

  • Illegally entering the U.S.: If there is evidence you illegally entered or remained in the United States, you may be charged with a crime or deported.
  • Illegally entering the U.S. following deportation: If you unlawfully re-entered the United States after having been deported at least once, you can be charged with a federal offense. In previous years, you may have been allowed to voluntarily return to your native country. However, the U.S. is currently focused on prosecution, which could lead to imprisonment.
  • Smuggling non-citizens into the U.S.: It is illegal to aid individuals in unlawfully entering the country. This offense is also known as alien smuggling.
  • Transporting or harboring undocumented immigrants: If there is evidence you have transported, housed, or in any way harbored someone who is not allowed to be in the United States, then you can face criminal charges, no matter your own immigration or citizenship status.
  • Trafficking identity documents: If law enforcement officials obtain evidence that you created, distributed, or sold false identity documents, then you will be charged with a crime.
  • Making false statements in regard to citizenship: You can face charges and deportation for falsely claiming to be a U.S. citizen in order to benefit from a state or local law.

Undocumented Immigrants Have Rights

There is a false belief that undocumented immigrants do not have any rights. This is simply not true. If you immigrated to the U.S. and currently do not have legal authorization to be here, you may not have the exact same rights as someone living in the country lawfully or as an American citizen, yet you are protected by the U.S. Constitution.

Specifically, you have the right to legal advice and representation. Unfortunately, when dealing with law enforcement agents and immigration officials, you are unlikely to be fully informed of your rights. These officials will most likely not suggest that you get an attorney or make one available to you. It is up to you, your friends, and your family to find an experienced immigration attorney to help.
